How we have helped others

Thank you for your caring, compassionate and helpful guidance shown to our family during a very stressful time.
Thank you for being so helpful and supportive in our quest to improve my aunt’s quality of life. Only that you and the Commissioner intervened on my aunt’s behalf, I feel we would still be going around in circles.
How lucky we are as a community to have you defending those who are so extremely vulnerable.
The words ‘thank you’ seem grossly inadequate to express the gratitude that my mother and father and of course myself have for you.
Today’s outcome was an answered prayer made possible by your caring, professional, and diligent approach, and it will make such a difference to mum and dad.
You took the time to listen and stepped forward as a true advocate for my parents at a time when they felt totally powerless and extremely vulnerable.
Please keep doing what you do, you truly make a difference.
